The Festival Structure...

The Opening night: Each year the Festival is dedicated to an anniversary that has changed the life of theater or of society. The Opening Night of the Festival is dedicated to such anniversary and includes some of the artists participating in the Festival and local artists.

The seventh annual In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY will kick off on Monday, April 29 at 7pm at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marim at NYU (24 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011) with the Opening Night Rainbow Jubilee, an international celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

The evening will include staged presentations of the four winning plays from the KIT Playwright Series. Thirteen 10-minute plays from around the world, selected by an international jury, were presented as a staged reading in front of a live audience. The audience and a committee of local artists voted, and chose the top four plays to be presented. Admission to the event is FREE


Full-production shows: Professional theater shows from Italy. Each show has had at least ten performances around Italy. Each show will have two performances during the Festival: one in Manhattan and one in one of the other four boroughs. Each show is either bilingual or with supertitles.


Readings: readings of Italian plays, already presented in Italy, translated into English. Presented in partnership with playwrights, Festivals and Playwrights projects.


The Mario Fratti Award for Excellence in Italian Play-writing: Since 2014, every year the jury of the Mario Fratti Award – comprised of 7 people (2 artists from the previous edition and theater makers) – chooses the winner’s play among the submissions. All plays need to never been produced. The winner will receive a translation of their work into English as part of the MFA Collection and a reading of such translation. Since 2018, all MFA winners have been published by In Scena! under the MFA theater collection.
